If you can imagine it

you can render it

There’s nothing more important than the realization of your artistic vision. Cinema 4D Release 21 includes some new rendering technologies, new Nodes, vast improvements to the Node workflow, and ongoing development on ProRender so you can achieve your creative goals. 

Intel Open Image Denoiser

Get great renders out the door faster than ever before with the power of machine learning and Intel’s Open Image Denoiser. This breakthrough technology cleans up typical render noise so fewer iterations are needed for an acceptable image. Best of all, the denoiser is implemented as a post effect and available for Cinema 4D’s Physical Render, ProRender, Redshift and third-party render engines.

Nodes for Everyone!

You’ve told us how much you love the new Node-Based Materials introduced in Cinema 4D R20 – and how much you’d love to use the same interface with third-party render engines. Cinema 4D Release 21 introduces Node Spaces for managing nodal setups for multiple render engines within a single material, and many of the most popular external render engines are already evaluating the new API to implement their own Node Spaces.

NEW PHYSICAL RENDER NODES

You can now cache the 2D result of nodes, and generate various effects like blur, sharpen and emboss. The Cells node allows advanced control of Voronoi patterns. With the Trace Multi-Ray node you can generate advanced shading effects like ambient occlusion, blurry reflections, rounded edges and more. 

PRO RENDER ENHANCEMENTS

Users on Windows and Mac can take advantage of the latest ProRender enhancements to harness the GPU for rendering. Create advanced ProRender materials using nodes and the powerful new Node Spaces. ProRender features more than 70 unique material nodes, which include the ability to render volumes. There’s also new multipass options and support for out-of-core HDRI skies.

DRAG AND DROP NODE WORKFLOW

Now you can duplicate nodes with a simple drag-and-drop, and drag to rearrange the ports within each node. New input and output nodes make it easy to untangle the wires.

PROTECT YOUR NODES

Export encrypted versions of node assets to sell or share without exposing the details of your handiwork.

AOVs

Create your own custom passes by using the power of AOVs. You can create a pass for every node you might need for your final composite.
